Rockstar has today announced that they will soon be giving all GTA Online players a “stimulus package,” that includes $500,000 of in game cash to use online, which will begin rolling out over the next week in two separate deposits, both of which will be $250,000 a piece and will be announced via Rockstar Newswire.
This is mostly due to some of the errors and connection issues that players have experienced, explaining it with the following statement:
“For players who experienced cloud server errors, connection issues, and lost game progress and characters in these first days of GTA Online, we hope this GTA$ helps to facilitate a fresh start or makes your continued life in Los Santos and Blaine County extra sweet.”
“In order to keep the current worldwide in-game economy balanced, we will be providing this GTA$ to players via two deposits of $250,000. We will announce specific dates as soon as possible,”
There is a catch however, to be eligible you must have played GTA Online within the month of October 2013, if you have you will receive a title update sometime next week, dubbed title update 1.0.4, which will also fix some of the issues with vehicle purchase loss and will enable the functionality that Rockstar will use to send the money to players.
